Camas dancers razzle, dazzle to state
Tuesday, March 19, 2013
With a razzling hip-hop routine and a dazzling jazz display, the Camas High School dancers are on their way to the 4A state dance and drill championships Friday and Saturday, at the Yakima Sun Dome.
Head coach Ranae Scott is thrilled that the Papermakers earned this opportunity in just their first dancing season in the largest classification in the state. Most of the 4A teams have more members coming up through middle school programs every year. Camas doesn't have that luxury. When new girls join the team each year, they are starting from scratch.
"These girls have come a long way from not dancing to doing break dancing, headstands and building very technical routines," Scott said. "Some of the strongest dancers we have on the team have never danced before this year. They have a lot of natural talent, and we're harnessing that talent and taking it to the next level."
